Get tickets to a performance you will never forget! "Not just impressive -- completely astonishing!" is how one critic described the innovative and highly influential trip-hop sound of Massive Attack. With their darkly sensual blend of soul, punk, R&B, reggae, and hip-hop, this phenomenal group grew out of the same intensely passionate impulse that inspired Portishead, Sneaker Pimps, Tricky, and Beth Orton -- and revolutionized the contemporary musical scene.
Beginning their career as "The Wild Bunch," Bristol natives Andrew "Mushroom" Vowles, Grant "Daddy G" Marshall, and 3D (aka Robert del Naja), with an occasional assist from Nellee Hooper, burst upon the English club scene in the 1980s and quickly attracted enormous crowds. Audiences and critics alike recognized that here was a group of genuine artists: tough and cool, but also tender, lyrical, and honest. Their masterful first two albums, Blue Lines and Mezzanine, were released to critical acclaim and became instant classics.
Massive Attack has achieved genuine cult status among people who know the genre, for their lovingly crafted, top-notch rapping, and haunting, seductive fusion of so many different musical influences. If you've never heard this group, you're sure to be fascinated with their unique sound, that has been called menacing, with a dangerous undertone -- but also simply "exquisite."
This band rewrote the book on live performances; it's said that they briefly turned the city of Bristol into a nonstop party! A ticket to Massive Attack is a ticket to an awesome experience! Get swept up in the magic, and catch this terrific group LIVE!
